10 years ago, God blessed me with a beautiful baby girl! Gabby is exactly what we needed to complete our family. God knew her before she was ever born, and he chose me to be her mom! Wow! What an honor to be the chosen one! Gabby is a blessing to everyone she meets! She has a smile that lights up her face and a compassionate spirit that draws you close to her. Gabby has such a big personality and loves this world she lives in. Being a military brat has been the right choice for her. She’s a resilient child and bounces back better than ever each time we move. It’s amazing to watch her grow, and to see her character develop and her personality strengthen each time we move. She doesn’t have a problem being the new kid on the block, that’s for sure! Gabby’s heart is all about people, giving to the poor, loving on the sick, and even bringing home the strays (animals) that she finds! These qualities are definitely what makes her – Gabby! She makes me so proud when I see her standing on the sidewalk spinning her homemade sign, advertising lemonade for sale, that oh by the way all proceeds are donated to various cancer awareness organizations! She’s very successful and people donate because she is too cute out there with her big ‘ole smile and her enthusiasm, not many can tell her NO! There is no doubt in my mind that God has a big plan for her life!
Dear Lord Jesus, please teach me how to be the right mother that Gabby needs me to be. Please show me ways to encourage and nurture her to be the person you made her to be. Help me to do a better job in training, teaching, and most importantly leading by example. Protect her and keep her safe. AND please keep all those boys that are up to no good away from her and please help me to SURVIVE this next set of tween years ! Amen.
So meet Gabby! The sunshine to our family!
After arriving back home from our 7 week vacation, we walked into our home and this was waiting for Gabby! She is loved by many! And my neighbors ROCK!
Gabby I love you and I am so very proud to be your mother! But please be good to me these next few years! You are a tween now and we all know what that means!
